This zoo is not that great. You will feel sorry for the animals. But I have seen worse circumstances at least these are well fed and very clean. They also have a lot of room for each. We all have opinions on zoo's. The zoological zoo in Puerto Vallarta is more like a dangrous Roadside petting zoo than the Portland... More

This zoo was amazing because of the ability to be up close and personal to the animals. An ostrich tried to peck my phone right out of my hand while taking pictures, and you can hold a carrot in your mouth and the giraffe will lean down and take it from you. Also you can feed the monkeys and baboons... More

Down South past Mismaloya beach. Fun zoo where they let you feed the animals! Buy the inexpensive food, and enjoy having the animals 'perform' to get their snack!

This was so much fun. The animals were amazing and fun to watch and feed. The giraffe was a real highlight.

Started off a little sad. Would recommend seeing the place. Lots of close interaction with the animals. Petting the baby kittens was a fun experience.

We were hesitant to go to the PV Zoo after reading the reviews, but decided to go. We took the bus from the Marina to the end of bus route on south side by Freddy Toucans restaurant. We walked a few blocks to catch an orange bus to Mismaloya. The bus stop is on a corner with an OXXO in... More

We weren't sure about this zoo after reading the reviews, which were mixed, but we're glad we decided to go. We took a bus from Puerto Vallarta, and didn't mind the 10-minute walk up to the Zoo from the highway. We were amazed at the variety of animals we saw, and enjoyed the fact that you could get very close... More
